Switching out your wardrobe to match the seasons is a no-brainer, so why do so many women forget to do a makeup overhaul as well? The same way you wouldn’t wear a wool sweater in summer, there are beauty products that should be pushed to the back of the shelf for another season.
Here are the top products you should ditch, and the ones you should switch to, to keep your makeup look as vogue as the rest of your look.
Ditch: Liquid Foundation
Switch: Tinted Moisturizer with SPF
Boscia- B.B. Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 27
Just as heavy fabrics get boxed up until fall, so should the heavy foundations. A tinted moisturizer or BB cream will give your tanned skin the minimal coverage it needs while allowing your skin to breathe through the summer heat.
Ditch: Pressed Powder
Switch: SPF Powder
Glo Minerals- Protecting Powder SPF 30
We all know that powder and moisture don’t mix. To avoid looking cake-y in the summer heat, ditch your all over face powders. Absorb excess oil AND keep your skin protected by using an SPF powder. It’s the easiest and most convenient way to continually reapply SPF throughout the day.
Ditch: Powdered Blush
Switch: Cream Blush
Becca – Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle
Out with powders already! Summer is the season of glowing, dewey skin. A cream blush with give you just that, with a little color to enhance your tan.
Ditch: Matte Lipstick
Switch: Tinted SPF Balms
Supergoop! – Acai Fusion Lip Balm SPF 30
Matte is another style best saved for fall and winter. You want your lips to look shiny and plump while hanging poolside. An SPF balm will add a pop of color to your face while keeping lips hydrated and protected.
Switch: Waterproof Mascara
Estee Lauder – Sumptuous Extreme Waterproof Lash Multiplying Mascara
Lazy summer days are no time for the heavy look or maintenance that eye liner brings. Long, voluminous lashes should be your focus, bonus points for a waterproof formula that won’t smudge.
